Anybody like to play with slow shutter speeds?
Show us some images.
This Intermediate Queen Angel was taken with a Nikon D2x at SS1/8 sec, f36, ISO 100, using a 60mm micro (focal length 90mm) lens with a slight bit of panning.
Dual Inon 220 strobes, manual, turned down one stop. The picture was taken in 12 feet of water so lots of ambient light.
(Thanks to Mauricio Handler for getting me addicted to this!)

Thanks Douglas for pointing out a small detail that I left out. I do use RCS especially with fish and turtles etc. If the subject is stationary and just moving with surge/current then just standard setting of the flash.
Switching the RCS on and off with the Aquatica housing and the D2x requires both hands and a few toes so with a swimming subject I have to think ahead... a diminishing attribute.
